The Interior Minister of France has confirmed that a train derailment in Paris today has left at least seven people dead and many more injured.
Details are still coming in, but Manuel Valls told the press that the casualty toll is “in constant evolution,” as investigators will be sifting through the damage for many hours to come.
The train was reportedly carrying 385 passengers when it ran off the rails around 5:15 p.m. local time, crashing into the Bretigny-sur-Orge station about 12 miles south of Paris.
It was en route to Limoges.
Four cars piled up after the accident took place, while it remains unconfirmed whether anyone is trapped inside the rubble.
